Graduate Student Services & Information
Monmouth University offers a variety of services to its graduate students.
An integral part of Monmouth’s overall campus-life program is the Rebecca Stafford Student Center, which serves as a gathering area for all segments of the University community. It is an area where students meet informally and formally to share common interests and develop friendships.
The Student Center includes dining facilities, lounges, Wachovia banking office and ATM, a computer lab, meeting rooms (including the Greek meeting room), commuter lockers, and is the site of many campus and community events. The Student Center is also home to the offices of the Student Government Association, Student Activities Board, and various clubs and organizations. The Student Center is the site of the Division of Student Services, Student Activities/Operations, International Student Services, Central Scheduling, the Center for Student Success (CSS), the Undeclared Majors Office, the Office of Career Services, the Office of Off-Campus and Commuter Services, Study Abroad, and the First Year at Monmouth Office.
There is opportunity for all students to participate in the extensive cultural life at the University. The Lauren K. Woods Theatre offers a year-round schedule of theatre presentations, and students need not be theatre minors to participate. Casting is done through open auditions; backstage assistance is always appreciated.
The in-concert series features world-renowned musicians in classical and jazz performances. The dance program provides regional and professional dance companies for student enjoyment. Other cultural events include a poetry reading series, an annual Public Issues Forum, and guest lectures throughout the year. The University maintains three art galleries with an ongoing schedule of exhibits.
While Monmouth has no religious affiliation, it does recognize the important place religion has in the lives of many of its students. In addition, churches and synagogues representing the major religious faiths of the campus community are within convenient reach of the campus and are available for services and personal counseling.
The William T. Boylan Gymnasium provides excellent facilities. Included are an Olympic-size swimming pool, three full basketball courts, an aerobics room, a fitness center, and a training room. Outdoor facilities available to students for their recreational use include tennis courts, outdoor basketball courts, an eight-lane all-weather track, and soccer, baseball, and softball fields. There is a year-round Intramural Sports Program, which includes badminton, basketball, floor hockey, football, softball, and volleyball.
